The discussion begins with us talking about what Vacation Horror means to us and what are go to horror movies are within this genre.

On this week’s Versus segment, we took the beloved Griswald Family and put them up against The Strangers. The Twitter polls were super close with have the Griswald’s at 42% and The Strangers at 58%. We all deiced that the Griswald’s would try their best to survive The Strangers, but would suffer heavy casualties, in this weeks match. Shout out to all the people who voted this week and gave us their responses.
We introduced a new segment this week called “What did we Watch”. Where we try to guess each others movies, based on some criteria we came up with. But it didn’t work out as we hoped, because we chose hard movies to guess. So we are going to restructure the segment.
This week we watched two movies to review Phoenix Forgotten directed by Justin Barber and we also watched Pool Party Massacre directed by Drew Marvick. If you have yet to watch this go do yourself a favor.
As usual everyone, hit us up, join the conversation, and Stay Weird.
